Legal Studies

Professor Marilyn E. Phelan, Coordinator.

Through arrangement with the School of Law, graduate students may take certain courses in law to supplement their programs or, in some cases, to meet the requirements for a formal minor. Enrollment of graduate students in individual law courses is subject to the availability of space and approval of the professor in charge. Graduate students should consult their advisor before enrolling in such courses to ensure that the courses are applicable to their program. Courses that may be appropriate for a minor in legal studies also are available in such areas as political science, history, business administration, and sociology.

Joint programs of study leading to the degrees of Doctor of Jurisprudence (J.D.) and Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.), Master of Public Administration (M.P.A.), and the M.S. degree in Agricultural Economics are available. These joint degree programs are of benefit to students who contemplate careers in professional management or public service or those who envision careers in such narrowly specialized areas such as tax accounting, banking, real estate, collective bargaining, or international business. The program enables students to study, compare, and relate simultaneously the special subject matter areas and the law, completing the requirements for both degrees in three years instead of the four years required if pursued separately.
